Long-running proposals to restrict parking near the Northern General Hospital for the sake of residents have finally been approved by the council.

Double and single yellow lines and pay and display parking for up to two hours are due to be introduced after a series of public consultation exercises.

Most of the objections from residents in Norwood Road, Crabtree Road, Herries Road and Fairbank Road have been resolved, councillors were told.

They looked for alternatives after residents objected to permit parking.
